Both WarCry and The Escapist use basic customized HTML.
You may either use
- bracket vectors [ ]
- arrow vectors < >
They are interchangeable and up to preference.
Most of the HTML used by the WarCry/Escapist requires that you open and close the vectors.
 :D [/]
Remember this if you are having issues with HTML not working to your liking.
Also, you must close the vectors in the order of opening them.
[center][b]Hello![/center][/b] Will not work.
[center][b]Hello![/b][/center] However, will.
HTML is cap sensitive. So, if you notice your post not acting how you'd like, you might have put [b] [/B]
Text formatting is accepted.
- [b] Bold [/b] = Bold
- [i] Italics [/i]= Italics
- [u] Underline [/u]= Underline
- [strike] Strike [/strike]=
- [strong] Rwar [/strong]= Rwar
- [sup] 2 [/sup]= Rwar2
- [sub] Small [/sub]= Small
WarCry accepts text alignment in the form of:
[left] [center] [right]
The use of headings can create a more professional looking post, (Don't splurge though.)
- [h1]Professional[/h1] =
- [h2]Professional[/h2] =
- [h3]Professional[/h3] =
- [h4]Professional[/h4] =
Only difference is on WarCry [h1] text is orange and bold-er.
First, we'll cover images. You can do this multiple ways to embed images.
- <img src="www.pic.com/pic1">This tag does not need to be closed.
- [image] www.pic.com/pic1 [/image]
- [img] www.pic.com/pic1 [/img]
You can also resize the picture with tags.
[img height=20 width=30]www.pic.com/pic1[/img]
Linking is also an important and useful tool. There is also multiple ways to do URLs, and thus it is up to preference.
- [link="Warcry.com"]Go to WarCry [/link]
- [url="Warcry.com"]Go to WarCry [/url]
- <a href="warcry.com">Go to WarCry </a>
You can put anythin' between them, even images.
The part you want is the part that comes after the = sign.
This tag does not need to be closed.
Common Forum Mark up:
The quote, spoiler and User tags are used in your everyday forum going.
[quote] Words [/quote] will create a nifty little box to contain everything.
It's useful when answering questions, posting articles or just creating a clearer post.
You can also alter what it says by using [quote=AwesomePawsome]
[spoiler] Oh noez, Harry Potter died! [/spoiler] will hide information until it is clicked.
It's useful when post loads of images, a large article or when discussing spoilerrific things.You can also alter what it says instead of spoiler by using [spoiler=Don't look!]
[user]Lucem712[/user] = Lucem712
Using @Lucem712 also works.
Useful if you do not want to bother them with quote notifications, but do want them to know you are referring to them. (Though, who doesn't love being quoted?)
